Rosemere's First at Penwortham Gala

Volunteers at Penwortham Gala Rebecca, with volunteers Lesley and Irene, took the Rosemere stand to Penwortham Gala for the first time. The sun shone all day and visitors snapped up tombola prizes from the stand raising a total of £272.01.

Thank you to all who attended and to our trusty volunteers.

Thumbs Up For Stonyhurst Golf Day

This year’s  9th Stonyhurst Golf Day took place on a rather warm Friday 1st June and was sponsored by Donna and Tyler Stevenson who operate the Blackburn branch of GreenThumb Lawn Treatment Service.

An all-time event record of £1598 was raised from the day which was followed by refreshments, a raffle and auction at Hurst Green’s Bayley Arms. A huge thank you to everybody that supported the day and made it the huge success it was.

Kirkby Lonsdale Shoppers Boost Appeal

A store collection on the Saturday before Christmas at Booths’ Kirkby Lonsdale store raised £920 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

The collection was taken up by members of Lunesdale Rotary Club, who parked their Santa sleigh at the supermarket’s entrance. President Elect Mr Hugh Sweenie presented the donation to Rosemere’s Cathy Skidmore.

The money will go to Rosemere's 20 Years Anniversary Appeal, which is funding a trio of ground-breaking projects celebrating the 20th anniversary of the opening of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust’s Rosemere Cancer Centre at the Royal Preston Hospital.

Chamber Donation

Earlier this year the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce held their annual President's Summer Ball at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel. There was a raffle and auction with proceeds split between us & East Lancashire Hospice.

Pictured is Head of Fundraising Dan Hill accepting their generous donation of £895 from Christine Lambe and Linda Jameison from the Chamber along with Sharon Crymble from the hospice. Thank you to everyone who supported this wonderful event!
